Here at RFT Music, we care about our readers. We want to bring you sunshine, not rain. Joy, not pain. That's why we sucked it up and watched the ridiculous 56th annual Grammy awards last night -- so you didn't have to.

No need to thank us -- we were happy to sit through four hours of hell to earn your love. We endured everything from Katy Perry's battle with the Harry Potter dementors to Robin Thicke corrupting Chicago (the band, not the city, though we imagine that happens too) to Daft Punk winning everything but refusing to say thank you. The entire Grammys telecast wasn't completely terrible, though. We also got to witness a performance from the two surviving Beatles and Kendrick Lamar making Imagine Dragons sound infinitely better than they really are.

Below, check out Grammy highlights and tweets about a few performers (we're hesitant to call them all "musicians") who have visited St. Louis or will be gracing our venues soon. And if you really, really feel like punishing yourself, you can consume a gazillion tweets and photos in our Storify collection about the Grammys. Get ready to say "Ugh" a bunch, though.


THE GOOD STUFF

Beyonce and Jay-Z Open the Grammys with Sexytime

The Bey+Jay duet might have been the worst-kept secret in Grammy history (other than the inevitable Paul McCartney/Ringo Starr deal [See below]), but that didn't keep us from getting all hot and bothered while the lovebirds were groping each other during "Drunk in Love."


Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr Fall in Love Again

The cutest Beatle and the most-overlooked Beatle hadn't performed together in years, but that changed in last night's TOTALLY SURPRISE triumph. Viewers tweeted their fear that the surviving British Invasion would employ holograms of George Harrison and John Lennon during McCartney's "Queenie Eye," but the Grammys wisely stuck to a Fab Two. Ringo may have been fake drumming, though.

Continue for more good stuff and some weird shit.

I didn't enjoy the Grammys much. Too much noise and not enough music. Am I getting old? A few good songs in between the bad ones.

Have to say about 3/4 of it was a joke. Where did it change from classy to ghastly?

and the lemmings sit there while satanic rituals are being performed right in front of them and have no idea what is taking place... wake up America... Protect your children... Educate yourself.... believe what you are seeing is real... cause it is really happening.

I loved it...I love music....it was nice to see a vast array of artists and the nominations being sung by ordinary people not the actual artists, that was different

Still beyond disappointed about credits running in on Nine Inch Nails and company. Seriously, very big deal for me to watch Lindsey Buckingham play with Nine Inch Nails and QOTSA and it was ruined.

I hate when lazy people complain about the state of music today. Its one thing to say pop music sucks, but just because you haven't opened your mind enough or even bothered to seek out talented, lesser known artists doesn't mean that music these days sucks. Pop music has pretty much always sucked, in general.

Madonna with a grill and pimp stick equals ridiculous! I have to think that while Willy, Merle, Kris, Paul and Ringo enjoyed the energy of Get Lucky-they probably wanted to kick Daft Punk in the ass!

considering most of today's modern pop music is computerized, handing out awards to robots seems appropriate.

Satanic rituals? Hell, I would have watched if I'd known that. Anything that pisses off christ stains is worth watching in my book.

@w0px That's what I'm here for - to watch/listen to stuff that's too disgusting for our awesome readers. Thank you! @rftmusic

Sara Bareilles is to me one of the best songwriters and singers around. i thought she should've won album of the year. exactly and also most mainstream music has sucked for about 15 years now at least since i can remember

Then I guess you'd better buy a one way ticket to Iran, because it's only gonna get worse for people like you in America.
